The Knicks and Magic played maybe the ugliest game of the season — the two teams combined for 15 points in the second quarter. Total. It was brutal.
But it was an exciting ending.
Tim Hardaway Jr. knocked down a deep three, a play set up by an offensive rebound. Hardaway, who had been back to defend a fast break, pulled the ball back to reset the play, and then saw the fading shot clock and jacked up a deep three.
With this, the Knicks and Timberwolves are tied for the worst record in the NBA and the best lottery odds.
